An Amazing and Historic Day in America

What an amazing day in the history of, not only our country, but in the history of women as well. This is a phenomenal woman who John McCain has picked for his running mate, Governor Sarah Palin from Alaska. If you don't know much about her - do a google search. Listen to her V.P candidate acceptance speech, I am sure it will be on youtube and probably on John McCain's website. This choice is not only historic but it is brilliant on the part of John McCain. And it is my believe that the Lord has had a hand in bringing this wonderful, unknown, but strong women into the forefront of our countries politics. She is exactly what our country needs. This is going to kick this race and election into high gear and up to another level. I look forward to the next 67 days until Nov 4.

Please, get involved. Don't vote on election day without researching the candidates first. Be informed. Make a responsible choice. Our country and our children's future depends on us electing the right people for president and vice president. I think that the McCain/Palin ticket is the answer to our nations problems. They are the answer to "Reform - Prosperity - Peace." The race is on!!

Move your boogie body

If you are looking for a good exercise video -

What was I thinking . . . what were they thinking???
So sit back, relax and ENJOY!!

Well I don't know about you but
HOTDOG - I think I'm going to get my "Boogie Body" moving after watching this.

Now What?

Wasn't the closing ceremonies awesome? I loved it all. But I am so sad that the Olympics is over.  Now what am I going to do with my time?  I guess I'll just get back to watching "America's Got Talent", "Jay Leno" and just look forward to the new season of "Ellen".   Oh. . . I guess I could clean my house!

I couldn't believe that the USA men's relay team dropped the baton but then when the women did it too I seriously was so surprised. Can you imagine how disappointed they were? I know I sure was.

August 11, 2008 - A Sad Day in Our Family

Just thought I'd let you all know that Scott and Amy lost their sweet little baby boy. He was born 4 months premature this morning. Everything was going fine but on sat afternoon all of a sudden Amy doubled over having major contractions. They rushed her to the hospital and by the time they got the contractions stopped she was already dialated to 4. One third of the amniotic sac had dropped down into the vagina and then eventually the cervix closed over it. They had specialists look at her and they just said that trying to push everything back up in was just too risky for Amy. They said that there wasn't anything else they could do. So they took her off of the medication that stops contractions and she eventually went into labor. Anyway. . . he was born at 1:30 this morning and he was 10 inches long, 10 oz and he was perfectly formed. He passed away a short time before he was actually born. They spent many hours just holding him and taking pictures. Mindy and Amy's mom were there with them the whole time. I was on the phone with them most of the night.

Anyway, they are doing ok, but it is a hard thing to deal with. You can imagine the grief that they feel. But I am so grateful that we have the gospel to give us strength and the knowledge that we can all see this baby again and that they will be able to raise him some day. They named him Joseph Scott (after his daddy who is Scott Joseph).

So I am finally a grandma. This wasn't quite how I planned on welcoming in my first grandchild but he is my first little sweetheart and I love him so much. They sent me a couple of pictures and I just think he is the most beautiful little thing I've seen. I just wish I could've been there to hold him.

Please remember them in your prayers to help give them the strength, understanding and comfort they will need in the upcoming days.

I love you Scott, Amy and little Joseph Scott!
